I made this over a year ago, inspired by the Architecture sets and the way they capture the essence of a building in the smallest possible scale. I tried to do the same for what I think is one of the most interesting buildings in Cincinnati, the Contemporary Arts Center. For reference, here's a picture of the real thing (image courtesy of npr.org):

...and here's my tiny little MOC:

At such a small scale, I had to make it much more rectilinear than the real thing, and I wasn't able to incorporate the "urban carpet" (the sidewalk curving up into the north wall), but I think it went pretty well considering I had been out of practice with MOCing for about a decade at that point. And I can always try it at a larger scale when I've accumulated enough bricks.

I love the simplistic accuracy of this miniaturized model of the Contemporary Arts Center. Very nice job on getting the tricky surfaces right. :thumbup:

For that scale and small amount of pieces, you captured the look of the building perfect. Nice job.
